We invite applications for an atmospheric chemistry postdoctoral 
position at MIT to investigate the reactive carbon budget of the 
atmosphere. The candidate will join a diverse research group at MIT 
which studies the composition and chemistry of the global atmosphere and 
the interactions of these with air quality and climate 
(web.mit.edu/heald/www). Major goals and responsibilities of the 
position include developing an improved description of the reactive 
carbon budget of the atmosphere (including gas and particle phase 
organics) within the GEOS-Chem global model, communicating and 
collaborating with the experimental team at MIT making novel 
measurements of organic wet deposition, investigating the constraints 
offered by these new measurements, presenting results at scientific 
conferences and preparing papers for scholarly journals.

REQUIREMENTS: a PhD in atmospheric science, engineering, physics, 
chemistry, or related field, experience with global or regional modeling 
of atmospheric chemistry, highly effective oral and written 
communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a research team.

The position has an anticipated start date of March 1, 2015 or shortly 
thereafter. Initial appointment is for one year, with possible renewal 
for second year depending upon performance. Additional details about the 
position are available by contacting Professor Colette Heald at 
heald at mit.edu.

Applicants should send a single pdf including cover letter, CV, and 
contact information for 3 references directly to Professor Heald by 
October 1, 2014.
